First Designversary!

One year ago, on June 1st, 2021, I found the courage to publish my very first design. I remember how it seemed hard to me at first but I never forget the excitement of bringing my talent up to the attention of other people all around the world. It was definitely a big jump for me out of my comfort zone, but absolutely worth it. I will always have my regret why I haven’t started earlier.

I had lots of ups and downs in the past 12 months. I thought maybe people are not as excited as myself to try a pattern by a new, yet unknown designer. sometimes discouraged to continue as I didn’t receive any feedback from the potential buyers. But I do appreciate and cherish any sales although it was not a big number compared to well-known designers like Tinna, still counts as an accomplishment.

Now I have 5 published patterns that l love as my babies. And my 2022 resolution was to design 100 patterns in the second year of being a designer. Charts of 25 patterns are ready now. They are close to being tested as I have to work on their written instructions first.

I wanted to announce a CAL for this anniversary, but unfortunately, I needed more time to get ready for my first CAL. Like all new things and the first time doing, I had to learn the process myself and add adaptations to my pattern called Maryam in Square CAL.

As the pattern was not tested by the professional testers, I was introduced to a group of professional testers by a Facebook friend. Thanks to Laurene who helped me get in touch with these amazing ladies. So the CAL is under test now and I will announce the starting date as soon as the test finishes and the pattern is ready to get published. Stay tuned!

Last but not least, I do have two running promotions until the end of June 2022:
